Young people and housing: cocooning, 4-star or planet friendly?

In the previous article, we introduced you to three kinds of young people based on the trends revealed by the survey conducted by JAM for Bouygues Construction of 1,000 people between the ages of 18 and 25 about their relationship to housing: the Swiss army knife, the open door or the move-in ready. Here are three more…

  • Teleworking: less travel, less carbon?

    When health conditions required the widespread use of teleworking – wherever possible – in 2020, the sudden drop in travel, especially by car, was obvious to everyone. Some have been quick to conclude that teleworking has a beneficial impact on the environment. But what are the real effects of teleworking on mobility, and as consequence, on the carbon footprint of occupational activities?

  • Ikea is developing SolarVille, a solar Smart City project

    And what if IKEA were set to sell us not flat-packed furniture but pre-packed Smart City kits? This is just what the Swedish giant seems to be working on, if its latest announcement is anything to go by. Named SolarVille, the project designed by Space10, its in-house innovation lab, can power a community with solar energy by way of a smart microgrid using blockchain technology.

  • Can solar panels meet the carbon challenge?

    To combat global warming, France has committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. Like France, many countries around the world have decided - by choice or environmental necessity - to turn to decarbonised electricity. In this quest for green energy, photovoltaics seems to have its full place, but is not the only viable solution. Incidentally, what is the status of its deployment potential?

  • How can we develop and build in the context of “Zero net artificialisation” ?

    23,000 hectares: this is the average annual area of natural, agricultural or forest land reallocated to urbanisation in France over recent years, the equivalent of 2.2 times the area of Paris, 33,000 football pitches or 19 million parking spaces. A figure which makes France one of the worst European students with regard to restraining real-estate development. The impact on biodiversity and CO2 emissions are such that there is an urgent need to hold back this effect. Although the target of Zero net artificialisation (ZAN) was written into the national biodiversity plan in July 2018, the strategy, method and means of bringing this into reality remains to be specified. Likewise the search for a denser, viable and liveable urban development model in large conurbations as well as town centres and small and medium-sized towns.
